Vipre PC Rescue Virus/Malware Removal


I manage a small data center a dental practice to be more exact. VIPRE has been selected as the top antiviruses scanner and malware detection removal for the practice. I also use this for my personal computers and other computer may come my way.

I would like to share with you the best free malware removal tool created.

VIPRE rescue gets update daily - it is an .exe that start scanning and performing deep scans. Virues definitions (again) gets updated daily - the program will compare and remove infected files it comes across including a rookit detection.

Available for 32 and 64 bit Version PCs:

Copyright (c) 2012 GFI Software. All rights reserved.

Copied 32-bit rootkit engine driver to system folder.

Usage: VIPRERescueScanner.exe [options]

/nolog - Disable logging (default is enabled)
/norootkit - Disable rootkit engine (default is enabled)
/path - Scan a specific path
/qlist - List quarantined items
/restore - Restore quarantined items

C:\VIPRERESCUE>[/box]

The first three options are obvious but it would be good to know how to use the last three. For the /path option allows you to do a custom scan of a specific location. You just need to type:

C:\VIPRERESCUE>Viprerescuescanner.exe /path C:\examplefolder

The /qlist option will display a list of all items that are in quarantine and assign a number next to them; 1, 2, 3, etc.
The /restore option allows you to restore the files that are in quarantine. You will need to specify the number of the item in quarantine you want to restore. Example:

C:\VIPRERESCUE>Viprerescuescanner.exe /restore 2
